Pretty sure my neighbor would notice the smell before my absence here is missed.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

The fact that my wife or child would discover my corpse is not comforting. I hope my dog doesn't decide I turned into food.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

If my dead body was lying around for many days and my dog was starving, I wouldn't give a **** if she started eating me, esp if it kept her alive long enough for someone to find her/us.

also why is the thread about this lol

It's more comforting than talking about the state of our nation.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I don't begrudge my dog the meal. It would be bad for things going forward I think with the family and the dog if they walked in on that scene though.

Dog wouldn't starve without me.

I assumed that "making America great again" would naturally entail legislation mandating that your family and pets die with you. Has Trump made no movement on this yet?

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

There was a woman I think in France who attempted suicide with pills and was very deeply unconscious and her dog ate part of her. Not a pitbull either. Something like a golden retriever.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Trump showing where his priorities are: While he invites the D1-AA football champs to the White House for the first time since 1995, he hasn't extended a solo invite to a women's championship team at all in his presidency, something the past 3 presidents did regularly

Quote:
Not a single womenís championship team has made a solo visit to the White House under Trump, although several womenís teams participated in an event in 2017 during which Trump celebrated numerous menís and womenís college champions in nonrevenue sports.

The past two WNBA champions, the Minnesota Lynx in 2017 and the Seattle Storm in 2018, were not invited.

Nor was the Notre Dame womenís basketball team, which won the NCAA title in 2018 before a crowd of 19,599 ó more than the number, 17,802, who attended North Dakotaís football title game in January.
Quote:
Every womenís college basketball champion was invited to the White House since 1983 before Trump took office, spanning five presidents.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

My theory is that his advisors know that he absolutely will not be able to keep from making some hideously inappropriate remarks about the girls' bodies or something while he rambles on trying to congratulate them, so they just don't remind him that it's even a thing. Trump surely would have no awareness of women's sports on his own.

Would any women's basketball team agree to go? Seems very unlikely.

Right after that last came up I signed up for reddit to create a subreddit, but they make you jump through more hoops than an OOT beauty contest.

Nah I think it's simpler than that. More women are likely to turn down the offer and make the news. Trumps dumb but some of his entourage don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

Signing up is easy but they have bot prevention stuff that probably keeps new accounts from starting subreddits.

Maybe he just thinks he'll have to spend more on food.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

T-Mobile has spent 195k at Trump’s DC hotel in last ten months while lobbying for sprint merger.

https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/...sprint-merger/

T-Mobile says that is 14% of their DC lodging and meeting budget, but funny enough they started staying there the day after the merger and could only provide one single visit to the hotel prior to that.

Also note obnoxious Legere swore off Trump hotels in 2015 after trump bashed T-Mobile service.
